11:00am
your financial advisor should focus on your long-term goals, not their short-term agenda. [ woman ] if you have the nerve to believe that cookie cutters should be for cookies, not your investment strategy. if you believe in the sheer brilliance of a simple explanation. [ male announcer ] join the nearly 7 million investors who think like you do: face time and think time make a difference. join us. [ male announcer ] at edward jones, it's how we make sense of investing. the two look at this. it keeps filling up. new all-time high. that is the rally. now the highlight reel. this is a new high for the dow. >> it is going higher.
11:01am
stuart: the dow has never been in this territory before. walmart is the one dow stock, one of the 30 dow stocks, that is in the red at this moment. i could not see a new high for the dow like this. that is what we have. i saved the dow closes today well above 142. >> it will close right around the 14,000 hi. stuart: on fire again, charles. how about that. dagen and connell, it is yours now. dagen: i loved the discussion about that 911 tape. the only moment in my life where i felt a warm feeling about a plaintiff attorney.
11:02am
connell: i am connell mcshane. dagen: i am dagen mcdowell. a new all-time high hit during the trading day. it looks like we will have a new all-time closing high. do we keep going up from here? connell: chicago gridlock. snow grounding flights in the windy city. dagen: martha stuart on the stand. two of the biggest names in retail fight over her brand. connell: the threat coming from abroad. china. we will talk about how much of a threat there is when it comes to our trade secrets. dagen: it is the top of the hour. nicole petallides has it covered. lou: a little celebration for all the bowls out there. we have the dow at 6500.
11:03am
now you are seeing it at 14,273. some of the names that are helping us along today are united technologies, hewlett-packard and american express. hewlett-packard is the best performer year to date. most of the traders did think that we were building to the new highs. some of the reasons they say we did that was because there was frustration and bonds and gold. and the fact that people just started to get back in there. and china, that was another factor. all-time new record highs for the dow jones industrials.
11:04am
connell: how long will the rally really last? we have a chief investment strategist with us today. which camp would you be in? a lot of people will see this today. do we stop here, hang out for little while, pull back or hang out a little bit longer? >> the transportation average registered new time highs last month. that would be the fourth signals in the bottom of march of 09. you have probably used up a lot of energy getting up here. you could see a little bit of a pause or a pullback. i think the stock will be higher at year end then they are now. connell: if you have it, put it
11:05am
in the stock market. if you think about the year today, you mentioned the transports, even the other major indexes and averages that we talk about, whether it is the dow, we will see, the s&p and nasdaq have also done well. the s&p 500 at 1540 right now. it closed out last year at 1426. we would probably take, if you said to us at the beginning of the year, they alright that is not too bad. you don't think we will pull back a little? >> >> the history is that the s&p is 6.1% higher a month later and 83% of the time and 12.8% higher three months later, 100% of the
11:06am
time. i have been chanting that everything that happened back in the beginning of january. there is a lot of underinvested people. we have 800 portfolio managers here. the mood is pretty upbeat. people are underinvested in trying to keep up with the s&p 500. connell: how do they do that? do i just throw it in a basket of stocks? are you much more selective and it so it areas? >> i think you have to be more selective. i like most of the sect ears. the only one i am not real wild about would be the consumer staples.
11:07am
i think you have to be somewhat selective within those nine other sectors. rather than throwing all the capital in at this juncture, i would suggest breaking up into four tranches. commit 25,000 of it today and wait for two or three or four weeks before committing the second. connell: it is not like every single concern we have talked about, political and otherwise, have necessarily gone away today. the dow is out 14 to and change. >> that is correct. that could give the market a
11:08am
cause for pause. i am fairly optimistic that the boys and girls will come together with some kind of solution. i do not think that pullback will be all that big. connell: as always, we thank you very much for coming on. dagen: how do you make more money from here? charles payne knows. connell: he is sitting here next to us. we will keep writing this for a a while or it is time to have some caution? charles: for the last few years, i have been saying bye, bye, bye. they always feel like they have listed. at every level, people said i missed it, i will wait for the pullback. i still hear that.
11:09am
people never buy the correction. dagen: it seems like people are psychologically more concerned about losing money in the stock market. the stock funds have picked up. you are still seeing almost an equal amount of money going into stock. they should be worried about losing money, particularly in treasuries. charles: that great rotation you are talking about has not happened yet. i do not think this is a bernanke stock rally market yet. i think what we get to frothy or levels, this is not the hysteria mark. in fact, this has been the stealthy as rally in history.
11:10am
connell: rotation that will happen, that has not necessarily happened yet, where people come out of bond income into stocks. it does not make any sense at all. charles: people chase performance. everyone thinks they will pick the bottom in the correction and they end up missing it. people don't pick the top either. we always chase performance in this country. dagen: let's not act like this snap back happened in a few months. it has been over five years.
11:11am
charles: you have to be prepared to invest in a basket of great american companies. dagen: that would be the dow pretty much. charles: that is why the dow is that a new all-time high. i am talking about dollar tree. they have good news outside of this country or they were growing outside of this company. i think that will continue. connell: more from charles payne throughout the day. dagen: meantime, the weather. chicago o'hare airport reporting 1000 cancellations so far. it is a giant snowstorm that is moving across the midwest. connell: we have jeff flock at one of his favorite places. o'hare airport in chicago. jeff: speaking of pain, here we are in chicago. it is march. supposed to be the worst snow
11:12am
storm of the season. over 1000 cancellations thus far. i want to take you inside and show you the boards. we are up to 1300 so far. talk about the tsa lines. take a look at the tsa lines. this is what it looks like today. if you thought they were going to be delays, well, not so much going through the tsa. take a look at the cancellation and on-time boards. the yellow, by the way, that is canceled flights. if you look at them out there, a couple boards, there are only a few flights on time. the airlines have done really well despite, you know, issues that have been out there. airlines have actually done pretty well. of course, everything is up today. it does not make much
11:13am
difference. we will continue to watch this at o'hare because it is headed your way. it is coming to you next. good luck with it. connell: thanks. dagen: looking forward to that, jeff. thanks so much. connell: then we have the story of a pilot who claims he saw a drone as he was landing at jfk airport here in new york. former cia agent, mike baker, will talk with us about the drone threat to our nations security. dagen: martha stuart back in court. she is doing something she did not do while she was on trial for, well, obstruction of justice. she is on the stand. two of the biggest names in retail fight over, well, her. connell: our cyber threat continues today. trade secrets for government and corporations. important stuff. you may learn something new later this hour.

connell: here we go. look at this. breaking news of the day. let's go back to nicole petallides. nicole: i wanted to talk about some of the names. most of the names are in the green. all across the board, you are seeing winners. we were just going through them. some names are hitting 52 week highs. here is a look at the names in the dow.
11:18am
a short time ago, it did hit an annual high. johnson & johnson, 3m, american express, disney, home depot and boeing. these are the names hitting 52 week highs. on a day where we are setting record highs for the dow jones industrials, a day of celebration for many. we were betting the other way. it is a very interesting day on wall street. 14,281 right now. dagen: thank you, nicole. the sighting of a mysterious flying object near new york's jfk international airport. this after reports that a pilot claimed he saw a black drone hovering just 200 feet from his plane as he approached the airport. mike baker is here.
11:19am
good to see you, mike. thanks for being on with us. what do you make of this? maybe it will come to a surprise to people that drones are in use here in the united states. >> that is right. drones and develop to a great degree. that has always been the case. the military has benefited from technological advances and commercials suck yours. there are a lot of legitimate purposes for drones i think that, you know, people are very spun up right now. the drone program is going to come to the u.s. and suddenly everybody will be surveilled.
11:20am
well, honestly, i spent a long time. if you are not involved in terrorism or criminal activity, you probably do not have much to worry about. dagen: investigating crime scenes. mike, do we need to start worrying about it more? >> they have very interesting applications. the big stink has been about the idea that somehow we will use the drone.
11:21am
again, you'll never be able to convince some segments of society that that will be the case and that the government is out to do them in. i am more interested in the application. there has been a lot of this up on capitol hill. i know what they are doing which , they are poking the president, they are poking the white house. they disagree with john lennon's take on things, to some degree. dagen: according to a new fox news poll, 74% in use overseas to kill suspected terrorist. what if you look closer at these
11:22am
they have the authority to kill americans on u.s. soil. don't you find that shocking? >> yes, i do find that very unusual. i want to find who those people are. you can imagine, republicans are checking that box and things give that authority. it is a stunning bit of hypocrisy. again, i think, you know, we are getting a bit spun up. part of it was, the publicity. he has taken up arms over the
11:23am
u.s. he was taken out by a drone. he took up arms against the u.s. he basically renounced his citizenship. we could have taken the citizenship away. i do have eggs over getting any president the authority, to that degree, of targeting citizens here in america. dagen: great to see you. always terrific. if they want more of you, they can follow you on twitter. you are funny. >> i do my best. [ laughter ] dagen: it was great to see you. thank you, mike. connell: martha stuart back in court today. dagen: something she did not do while she was on trial. the cyber threat from china and other nations.

force the state to nullify those laws. those are your headlines. dagen, back to you. dagen: thank you very much. the queen of home goods took the stand today in the macy's versus jcpenney battle against her brand. we are talking about martha stewart. last week, macy's ceo testified that he hung up on martha stewart when she waited until the day before to let him know about it. the judge in this case signaled that he may block the rollout of products. you can check on the stocks of martha stuart, pennies and macy's. it is worth noting, arthur is on the stand today. she did not testify in her own

dagen: before the day is over with, i am going to get a yee haw from connell. we had an all-time high today. connell: let's go back to nicole petallides at the stock exchange. you remember 2007, nicole. nicole: i do. very well. so many people have been waiting to get back to these levels since that time. here we are today where we are hitting record highs again. right now, you can see hewlett-packard at $20.46 a share. it was $11 back in november. now it is $20. working hard on the turnaround. connell: thank you, nicole.
11:35am
dagen: the president and congress unable to strike a deal on the automatic spending cuts. his approval rating right now at 46%. connell: fox news contributor joining us in studio today. it is kind of interesting to follow up on what nicole is talking about. i do not know if it is a disconnect or not. we actually saw the economy shrank last quarter. i think what people are probably responding to more than anything else is the behavior last week during the discussion about the sequester. he was caught lying. saying this was congressional republicans ideas. this turned out to be an idea of the white house.
11:36am
they ultimately had to come out and say, yes, this was our idea. he has been pointing fingers and shifting the idea to other people. connell: again, it is like all of the bad things that will happen, they maybe do not want to hear that. >> rather than think of a way where we can avoid all of this, and he can do it, it just sounds kind of like a 3d imax horror picture. he said he does not want the flexibility. i think that point to what hh really wants.
11:37am
connell: it is kind of interesting to think about what may happen next. the president could pay a price for that. they do not happen, things are not that bad, maybe he will start to get credit for it. >> i think that the fact that the president's -- they should stand up and lead. connell: they are approval ratings are much lower. physically take the bill over to the senate and say we want to give the president the flexibility. if they do, great and if they don't, then it is their fault.
11:38am
dagen: the president is therefore almost another four years. >> he wants his ratings up. connell: good to see you. thanks for coming on. dagen: thank you so much. express scripts reported the first ever to client and basic prescription or traditional drug spending. a one and a half drop in spending. the pharmacy company says the drop in traditional drug spending is due to success in getting members to embrace cheaper pills and new versions of cholesterol drugs. shares of express strips of over 9% for the year. connell: also, some technology talk coming up.

11:44am
>> china is caring out about ten times the scale of economic espionage. when china steals business and technology, it matters a lot more. they could be stealing an entire industry. connell: that is quite -- when you think about what china does well, everything comes back to scale. there is so much left. ten times more than any place else. if china, for example, hurts us, isn't it in fact hurting itself in some ways or no? >> china needs to maintain an

extraordinary rate. they have been managing a growth rate of about four times of a developed country like the united states. in order to maintain that extraordinarily high growth rate, they have to copy western technologies. stealing western technologies and business secrets is part of the economic development strategy for the country of china. connell: it cuts back to your earlier point. the scale is at the chinese advantage. a lot of people have argued innovation. there is not as much of that they are as here in the united states or other place.

are looking at the stock market that they can buy two for the price of one. if you look at the overall statistics, the last time the dow was here, it was a much more of a celebratory situation. i mean, you compare, for example, just some of the numbers here. i was looking at them before i came on the air. gas prices the last time were this high were $2.75 a gallon. now they're $3.73. look at the g.d.p. last time we were this high was at 2.5%. we're at 1.6% and the number that's really depressing is if you look at the all-time high. americans, the last time the dow was this high, unemployment was 1.7 million. today it's 13.2. we'll celebrate it but at the same time, it still covers some bad things in the economy. dennis: let's go to a smart bull. charles payne, the worry warts are going to say we're too high,
12:05pm
too fast. this is not the top, is it? >> i don't think it's the top. i would invite anyone that thinks it's only ben bernanke, when is the last time you looked at any income statement of any company in the last quarter? i look at a lot of them, six to 10 every day. i'm talking whirlpool out today. let's just talk about operating margins and last year, the operating margin, 5.1%. fourth quarter, 6.5%. not just that they're up but trending higher and higher. why? because they're growing all over the world. now, there are some domestic stuff. the housing recovery is helping a lot of these construction companies, there's no doubt about it. lumber companies, but the change in the bottom line, obviously not coming from america. there's no correlation between the rally in america, say, for the housing market, people have that much right but they're discounting the world to have a euro thinking it's only europe and america when the globe has never been this prosperous before in the history of
12:06pm
mankind. cheryl: one of the big signals of the world economy and the world doing well is gold. that's what you've been following today. the gold mining stocks have been a big piece of this rally over the last year. >> well, you know, over -- in 2012 but this year they have not been doing well, cheryl, and this is something charles and i have differing opinions on but one thing i was watching today, when we were hitting all-time highs is federal reserve vice chair, she came out and said that the ben bernanke and the federal reserve should continue their easy monetary policy. this plays into the gold picture as well. this easy monetary policy, these record low interest rates, they have people looking for somewhere to put their money. it's not a savings account. it's not a certificate of deposit. where do you make money right now? charles, they're almost forced to go into the stock market. as long as the federal reserve continues this easy monetary policy, it's off to the races for the stock market. we're not cheering on economic growth in this country. there's nothing to cheer.
12:07pm
jobless rates still extremely high. what -- other than a few companies doing well because of global growth is there to cheer about? >> that's just that. we're talking about the dow 30. those 30 companies. that's why the nasdaq isn't back to 5,000 which was speculative but i think it's a mistake -- anyone who is suggesting to people not to be in the market, i want to know when they're going to come on tv and tell people to buy? will it be on the pull back to 6600? breakout of 15,000? when is the market going to get the okay from all the nay sayers because americans have missed this rally and that's the interesting thing. that's one of the reasons i'm bullish to be frank with you. dennis: the pickers are afraid the class will get mad if they don't make money. all right. thanks. fantastic job, guys. charles, sandra, nicole and nicole will be back every 15 minutes.
12:08pm
stick around. cheryl: let's talk about the dow 15,600. that's what many bulls, including our next guest, say is the true all-time high for stocks and they say we can get there soon. he says this, anyway. todd morgan, senior managing director jon:s me right now. you say investors are holding back and charles payne was mentioning this. they're completely wrong. how wrong are they? >> well, i think they're holding back, first of all, not because they think stocks are too expensiv expensive. i think it's what happened of 2008 and 2009 but it's starting to change. we're seeing people put the excess cash back to work in risk or growth assets. it's starting right now. i think with the markets going to a new high and we've been seeing the marks going to go to a new high for a while, i think it will be an impetus to get people out of the bunker and start putting money to work in assets that will give them greater returns.
12:09pm
remember, there's multiple trillions of dollars in cash right now and overweighted bonds. sha cheryl: you're right. we've had analysts say the same exact thing. you mentioned the fed. $3 trillion has been printed by the fed but now we're seeing a bit of a stronger dollar. what does that mean for u.s. multi nationals? people like home depot, caterpillar that have done so well over the last year. what does it do to them if the dollar continues to strength en? what happens then? >> i don't think it's going to be an impact. we like large cap, multi national, high dividend paying blue chips and the reason is they do business all over the world. there's greater growth in southeast asia, china, india, south america than here and they are beneficiaries. they have world class brands and i think if you think long term, not two months but two years, four years, you'll get a much
12:10pm
greater return than you will on bonds. in fact, we think equities will outperform bonds the next two or three years by maybe double or triple the returns in your bonds. >> we were just looking at the s&p 500. there's your dow. i want to go back to the s&p 500 for a moment because the s&p 500 has yet to go over the big mark on the s&p 500. what would you advise viewers to do right now? dow up 146, the confetti is out. do we wait for the pullback and if history shows that the pullbacks are coming in, do we buy on the pullback time? >> that's a very important question. we would all like to see it pull back. we all have some cash to invest. but the market doesn't always accommodate us. it climbs a wall of worry and the problem is too many people are looking for a big correction to get in the market they missed. we're advising people to put some money in. if you have brand new money, you haven't put any money to work,
12:11pm
you've put a quarter of a third in here and wait for a pullback but use disciplines. short-term, committee was not advise people what to do. long term, you have to plug your nose and buy world class companies here because you will get a greater return over the next three years. nobody can time the market perfectly. cheryl: we're looking at a chart of the volatility against the dow and of course, the s&p 500 as well and you're right. the smartest people in the world can't really time this market and neither should the viewers. todd morgan, thank you very much. good advice. thanks, todd. >> pleasure. thank you. dennis: long airport delays not because of the supposed sequester cuts but because of bad weather. we're live at chicago's o'hare. cheryl: martha stewart in the stand in the battle over her brand but penney's could be the loser. dennis: and worried about the security of your on line bank

12:16pm

12:17pm
northern part of the midwest. and so, you know, you see what it looks like. as i said, it's headed to the east. let's take a look live here in the airport. you take a look at the t.s.a. lines. i was out at the airport yesterday. we did not see any additional delays as a result of sequester and today curiously enough, there are fewer people out here but take a look at the boards. look at the cans clagss. that's the arrival boards at o'hare and the live boards, i can put the numbers up. at o'hare it's 1080, over 1,000. midway, another couple of hundred and minneapolis, another hundred plus so there you go. people making plans on their cell phones. the total, over 1,300 cancellations thus far. everybody is doing great today. airlines doing well despite the weather but it's actually been a pretty decent winter for the
12:18pm
airlines. they're telling us, this will be the worst snow in chicago of the year. welcome to march. dennis: thanks very much, jeff. our next guest says something is rotten in the beltway with government cutting down staff on airports and blaming it on the budget sequester. in your notes here, you start off with interesting math, mike. thank you for being with us. you say it's only a 4% cut in the f.a.a. budget but that still leaves the f.a.a. with plenty of money. please explain. >> after they did this, quote, sequester thing, the budget left is higher than 2008 and number two, controllers today are handling about a million fewer departures than they were in 2008 so if the sky is going to fall because of sequester, it's going to be this administration that shoots it down because these numbers just don't add up to make the cuts they're still talking about.
12:19pm
dennis: and are the cuts that automatic? no particular division chief has the right to move some money here or there? is it truly that arbitrarily or can every agency do something to make sure that the impact is lessened rather than increased? >> let's keep in mind, 85 billion is peanuts. 600 million to the f.a.a. leaves a lot of money there. we shouldn't be laying off anybody. i think what's happening is the administration wants to make this as painful as possible for the consumer and blame it on somebody else but we couldn't have these layoffs, shouldn't have extra lines. the homeland security secretary has no business saying there's longer lines. $85 billion and $600 million from the f.a.a., that's nothing. dennis: do you believe that the administration, the democrats, want to play up the bad impact? haven't i also heard plenty of republicans hanging crepe as well? >> so both sides of the aisle we're dealing with people that aren't the brightest bulbs in the chandelier but the reality of the whole thing is what they're doing is trying to say,
12:20pm
oh, because of sequester, all of these deep, deep cuts and no one bothers to ask on the media side, no offense, what kind of cuts are you talking about? f.a.a. $600 million in future spending, you have more money than five years ago and less work. dennis: do you think the sequester cuts will stay in place and ultimately will end up leading to longer lines, security lines at airports if we don't do something to fix this? >> no. these sequester cuts are nothing. they're absolutely nothing. f.a.a. with the cuts still has about 9% to 10% more money than five years ago and a million fewer flights to handle so there shouldn't be anything like this. this is all political posturing. it really is. i just wonder what country i live in now with this kind of thing going on in washington. dennis: inside from both parties, do you think there's almost a fear that what happens if we make cuts and almost nobody even notices and they don't care and they realize that
12:21pm
government does spend too much? >> they do. this is the same week here talking about longer lines and inconvenience, the same week we give a quarter billion to egypt. this is lunacy and republicans saying, look. we saved $85 million. big deal. that's the cost of a christmas party, guys. cheryl: software company s.a.p. profiting from the sequester. those budget cuts. take a look at the stock right now. s&p 500, 8156, up $1.65. we have an exclusive interview with their co-ceo.

12:27pm
percentage point at least is what the mortgage rates could go up. here's the plan right now. here is what the government at the market was saying about merging the bond units of fanny and freddie. we want to create something that could be sold and could be used as a foundation of the mortgage market of the future. so big plan underway at the bipartisan policy center. housing commission run by former senators george mitchell, martinez and former director. they want to wind up and break up fannie mae and freddie mac and turn them into a government bond insurer. this is a change in housing policy for the government and bankly the 30-year loan could go away. i mean, denmark is the only other country in the world that has a 30-year loan and here is why mortgage rates could go up. this is a five-year plan. it could happen in 10 years, it could be to the opposition but here is the future of fannie and freddie. they could charge fees for government bonding of just
12:28pm
bonds, not mortgages and the new company would for the fi time have to pay state and local taxes and also would have to file for the first time s.e.c. registration documents, so again, this amounts to a huge change in the future of the government owned entities and this is the first time, merging the bond units is a first step. dennis: given the fear of too big to fail, if they managed to do this and wanted to spin it out as a private thing, it couldn't get bought, would it? >> here is how it would work. they would put the balance sheet up for -- we've been in the touch for these guys working on the housing commission. they worked on it for 16 months, talking to congress about it. they would put the balance sheets up for bid, up for auction. so a black rock or bank of america could bid on those parts of the balance sheet as they fit in with their own portfolios. they're still back half of the mortgage market but if this takes place, you can guarantee aside from the other interest
